    I use commercial iron cleaner that Rowenta makes--but I think Dritz makes it too. It has always worked for me.

    I do too...the webbing can be a bear to remove :D:D:D
    for general build up I occasionally use a dryer sheet.

    It is cheaper in the long run to purchase an applique sheet if you do very much fusing:D:D:D

    Parchment paper or the release paper from the fusible itself works just as well as an appliqué sheet or teflon mat. To clean the iron, you can use an old toothbrush and vinegar or a Mr Clean Magic Eraser. Neither will scratch a teflon sole plate. There are lots and lots of other remedies that work with various degrees of success as well.

    I bought some iron cleaning sheets made to remove fusibles. Works great. It's a BoNash product. Goo Gone works with some scrubbing. Also Super Glue remover will work but it's expensive to use a lot and hard to find. I keep it for stuck fingers, which happens about twice a year around here.
